You can give your room an instant makeover with the quick switch of a rug. Everything about a rug， from the texture of its construction to its color scheme and the overall design， can heavily influence —； and therefore change —； the design statement in the room. Another important detail that shouldn’t be overlooked is rug size. Admittedly， figuring out the best rug size for any room can be a difficult task. Follow these expert tips and diagrams to help you choose the best rug size for your space.

In a living room， the rug helps define the space. To create an inviting， inclusive feel， choose a rug large enough to extend past all of your seating. To highlight a particular area， layer your foundation rug with a smaller rug that makes a big statement. If your living room space is very large， consider dividing it into separate seating areas， each with its own rug.
Still not sure if the size is right for your room？ Use painter’；s tape to outline the area you’；d like to cover， measure the perimeter and pick the nearest size in your favorite rug.

The Whimsical Collection is a new line the Jacaranda Living team will be unveiling this week in Atlanta, Georgia at the AmericasMart! The team is most excited about their new Whimsical collection, which consists of the Wildlife at Leisure tote bags, beach bags, pillows and more. The Whimsical line has been a big hit for the team as it has in the past consisted of various pieces that are conversation starters – from Julia Baille’s funny guest towels of men and women playing golf or sunbathing to sleepy elephants on pillows next to airplanes. It is a different collection, unique to the brand’s more elevated aesthetic that consists of elegant white linens and it is very exciting to see the company being brought back to its African roots.
